Birthed from Cleveland, Ohio and the city’s rich music scene, singer/songwriter/composer Nefertitti Avani is the granddaughter of Howard Johnson, an original member of the O’Jay’s. Singing at a very young age, Avani was putting together three-part harmonies at age nine and received national recognition for poetry at the age of 14. “My soul writes, my pen follows,” she says. "Being behind the scenes allows me creative freedom. I can do whatever I want and not worry about fitting into a box."
Nefertitti Avani is working on her EP “Motion Picture" due out in 2013.
